OK, ya'll know I am not a Yankee fan, but I still feel like Joe got the shaft yesterday. A manager with his record shouldn't have to prove himself in order to get paid, I'd say he's done that already. The fact they haven't won a series in so long has nothing to do with him but the personnel he's been given to work with (can you say pitching?). Well, I for one was saddened by the happenings of yesterday and am having a personal memorial for Joe. Right not the Stella Blue from the Beacon Theater, 6/15/76 is quite appropriate:

All the years combine
they melt into a dream
A broken angel sings
from a guitar
In the end there's just a song
comes crying like the wind
through all the broken dreams
and vanished years

Stella Blue

When all the cards are down
there's nothing left to see
There's just the pavement left
and broken dreams
In the end there's still that song
comes crying like the wind
down every lonely street
that's ever been

Stella Blue

I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel
Can't win for trying
Dust off those rusty strings just
one more time
Gonna make em shine

It all rolls into one
and nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold
for very long
And when you hear that song
come crying like the wind
it seems like all this life
was just a dream
Stella Blue

The bookend show to this was suggested yesterday, so why not continue the journey today?

I think Torre's going to be the Indians first base coach next season.

I was thinking it would be a Joey Bishop thread.

Joe puts on a great Christmas light display every year in his Philly area home - it grows and grows each year. Think lifesize plastic last supper with every apostle with a 70's era superfro and you're on the right track. Of course, it has been about 15 years since i last saw same, so I'm not sure if he's keeping that going...

Well, if he died, then I would say it's up to somebody else to put the lights on the house this year.

That is, if he died.

Joe Frazier.

Not Joey Bishop, because I already KNOW he died. It said so on CNN and everything.

I'm talking Joe Frazier.

And whether or not he died.

But wasn't somebody saying something about Joe Torre? Oh that's right, I forgot: I don't give a shit about the Yankees.

How funny would it be if Joe gets ateam and kicks the yanks asses next season.

I still can't beleive the Mets are giving Randolph a pass, what's up with that???

nicely said SDH

Im glad he told them to shove their offer where the sun don't shine (so to speak). Yanks will sink even further without him. Good luck to them (obvious sarcasm).

Or Tony Gwynn. I think he might fit in the new stadium.
